A leading resource for writers seeking skilled Black editorial professionals
We help writers publish confidently with our services.
Editing is not easy. In its quest for clarity, continuity, and flow, effective editing is about so much more than simply identifying faulty punctuation, incorrect subject-verb agreement, awkward phrasing, or disorganized ideas.
Editing works by Black writers can often be even trickier, requiring innate mastery of the myriad colorful colloquialisms—the idioms, slang, jargon, and even patois—we may sprinkle throughout our spoken and written forms of expression. Other editors may perceive it as wrong and attempt to correct or ask the writer to explain what it means. Some may judge or view the writer in a negative light. This can be deeply frustrating for any writer, to say the least.
Simply put, the fact is that no one speaks our language nor innately understands our culture, our dialect, our perspectives—our unique voices—like we do. The Black editors listed in this directory not only understand you, we are trained in enhancing your writing and clarifying your message while maintaining all the flavor of your unique voice and style.
